Damn Brownie Recipe

A perfect mix of gooey chocolate and crunchy pecans.


3/4 cup salted butter, plus extra for greasing
1 1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 cup milk chocolate, melted
1/8 cup milk
1/2 cup toasted pecans, chopped (must be toasted so that they stay crunchy)
3 - 4 marshmallows


Step 1: Preheat oven to 350°F and grease an 8" X 12" baking pan

Step 2: Melt the butter and pour into a bowl. Add the sugar and beat with a hand-held electric mixer.

Step 3: Add the eggs and vanilla and beat well until it's smooth and creamy.

Step 4: Sift the flour, cocoa, baking powder and baking soda together in another bowl and mix together. Add the butter mixture and stir together well.

Step 5:  Melt the chocolate in a bowl set over a saucepan of boiling water (making sure the base of the bowl doesn't touch the water.)

Step 6: Pour the melted chocolate into the batter. Fold and blend it together. Mix in the toasted chopped pecans.

Step 7:  Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan. Tear each marshmallow into about three pieces and poke them into the batter so they are almost covered  some can be poking out on top and others buried deeper keep it random.

Step 8:  Bake in the preheated oven for 30 - 35 minutes.
